Apply Now for the 2015 NYCUA College Scholarship Competition
The New York Credit Union Association (NYCUA) (previously known as CUANY) along with MHV is offering college-bound high school seniors the opportunity to compete for statewide college scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded in the amounts of $1,000 or $500 and may be used at a two- or four-year accredited educational institution.
Students can take advantage of this opportunity by completing three simple steps:
- Step 1: Stop in at any MHV branch to request a scholarship application form or download it here. If the student is not a member of the MHV, he/she can request a membership packet as well. All scholarship applicants are required to be members of a participating New York credit union.
- Step 2: Complete the application form, write an essay and obtain the required transcripts, along with the signature of a parent or guardian.
- Step 3: Return the completed form to MHV no later than January 31, 2015.
There is no fee for submitting an application, but applicants MUST be:
- members of MHV;
- college-bound high school seniors at the time of application; and
- attending either a two- or four-year accredited educational institution for the first time in the Fall of 2015.
In early spring, applications will be judged against other submissions statewide. Winner(s) will be announced in May.

Local Service Does Global Good on International Credit Union Day!
On October 16, 2014, credit unions around the world will celebrate International Credit Union (ICU) Day®. That’s 200+ million people … from 56,000 credit unions … in 101 countries joining together to celebrate their cooperative spirit.
Globally, this cooperative spirit has led to life-changing opportunities in the form of small business start-ups, home ownership, and education. In some countries, members encounter their first taste of democratic decision-making through their member-owned credit unions.
This International Credit Union Day, we hope everyone will join us in celebrating the credit union difference by visiting any MHV branch location on Thursday, October 16. We will have refreshments and giveaways for our members as a way of saying thank you for sharing the credit union philosophy of "people helping people."
